I agree it is pointless if you have money coming out of your ears.
But when DX10 comes out, it is going to be just a few months until DDR3, then just a few months until a socket change, then just a few months to this and that. If you worry about the new technology you are always going to be waiting. It is a game, a game of knowing when to wait and when not to.
